When I visit Rehoboth Beach, I always make the time to go to Browseabout Books. The name of the store can be deceiving because they offer more than books. There are toys, many of which are educational and can't be found in "regular" toy stores. There are greeting cards, puzzles, games, etc. I always leave the store with at least... More

Whether a book, card, gift--browseabout has it. If not will help you get it. They had the three books I was searching for, logos for a cousin and unique cards to send to special people. If I needed a cup of Joe could if got that too.

Browseabout has a cheerful, open atmosphere. In addition to having a great selection, the staff are excellent too. It is great to patronize your local bookseller. I've heard they have storytime in the mornings for kids but I have never been.

Browseabout has everything. They have a great book selection and lots of toys for the kids. The staff is friendly and is tolerant of the the little ones playing. We always find great, unique gifts for everyone. The coffee shop has a good selection. The best thing is the prices are reasonable and comparable to larger bookstores. Although I would... More

As we're down in Rehoboth at least once a month, this is the one place we NEVER miss. It's my kids favorite place at the beach...books, toys, things for your house....a great and unique combination. They do benefit from really being the only book store in the area.

I always make a point every time i visit Rehoboth to stop at this bookstore. It is never a 5 minute browse. I usually get caught up in the atmosphere. There is so much to look at and explore. You are never made to feel like you have overstayed your welcome. They have great merchandise. The best thing lately is... More

I like to support independent bookstores because I know it can be difficult to compete with the big chains and the online book sellers. Staff here are never rude but they do not go out of their way to be helpful either. If I cannot find something and ask, they more or less say well if it wasn't there we... More

Constantly upgrading his inventory, Steve, the owner, has created an eclectic tourist and local destination of merit. Aside from the fine books displayed for sale, the focus is uniquely on local and regional interests. The toys for all ages are imaginary. The regionally branded items are unique. There seems to be an unlimited number of shelving units (acquired from closed... More

Great place to stop in and check out some books. We came for a standard that was on our son's summer reading. They had a good selection of stationary, stickers and toys for small kids and some very cute beachy home decor which was well merchandised by theme in old armoires. The staff is very friendly and they have a... More
